Dual Fuel Gas regulator
 
1 Attachment(s)
I finally found the cooktop I wanted for my Motorhome. It is a Kitchenaid sealed burner model that can be LP or Natural gas.

This raises 2 questions.

1. Is the Pressure in the LP system sufficent for the appliance ?

2. Is the regulator pictured below set right, and is it the right one for my LP application?

I guess thats three questions :D

Is it online, got a link (one question from the gallery brings you back down to only 2 questions, right)?

The gas is already regulated at the cylinder, is this one in the cook top? If it is there probably won't be enough flow to work.

John,

The regulator pictured is supposed to be attached to the cooktop.

The brass center disk is flippable. If I pull it out and turn it over it has NAT stamped in it. What makes me wonder if I even need it is the 10LP printed on the side. I would assume (Not my favorite thing to do when it comes to gas) that that would mean 10PSI on the input side. 11 IWC of gas pressure is equal to approx 2 PSI.

I guess I could just plumb it in and see what happens when I light it :p

I have not installed the cooktop yet, and the regulator si not installed, there is a nipple on the cooktop to attach it to.

Nat/LP looks right, but I still don't think you will get flow through 2 regulators. I guess to be on the safe side hook it up with both of them, if it doesn't work eliminate the one in the cook top.

I agree. Two regulators might not allow the right pressure. Trial and error I suppose. Two are a better place to start than none.
